Boutip (6097) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of medium caramelized malt with light sweet undertones. Taste is quite bland with light honey notes and some caramel malt notes as well. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Bland and average offering it kind of makes me feel good about not having to drink beers from the early 1800s everyday.

Metalchopz (3202) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
750ml brown bottle from the LCBO with a painted label (front and back) that is pretty nice (old school western). Now called "Honey BeeLixir" and at 5% ABV. Pours a clean copper colour with a creamy, light-beige coloured, head that has good retention and great thick lacing. Not sure if this one is infected as it has this mild sourness that should not be there, or if the hop they use turns me off. Light sweet and fruity malts aromas. The taste has a bit of sweetness as well, with some sugars and roasted barley. The honey notes come in the finish. So, a beer that looks good for the style (with its bottle), but not much else in ways of honey brown.

robinvboyer (4309) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
750ml bottle from the lcbo. Dark amber pour, small beige head. Faint hop aroma, light sweet malts. Pretty boring and basic. The honey imparts a light sweetness, but i think its just adding some color and not much else. The finish is lightly bitter, with some more light cereal malts.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
Light reddish brown pour with a white head that faded quick. Very weak scent. I expected something sweeter. Actually not bad and very easy to drink. A bit grassy. Something bitter in the finish I dont really like.

SoberDave (182) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Smells of honey and hops. Pours a cloudy amber colour. Fizzy head that hangs around the edges. Slight hoppy taste with spice and hint of honey.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2013
750 mL swingtop bottle. Bottle says 5%. Overpackaged - this is too much bottle for this beer. Amp this up to 8.5% and make it more interesting, THEN put it in a big swingtop. Its not horrible - better than the mainstream honey-browns certainly. Smells better than it tastes. You can actually taste the remnants of the honey. Still. Not necessary to go back to this one. Theres too much of it to start with.

Tessic (1077) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
This trad ale poured a dark amber colour with a bright white, soapy head. Scents include ligght vinegar, caramel and bread. First sip was medium bodied with flavours of honey and malt with additional flavours of cereal. Finish of honey and vinegar. eh?

750ml bottle swing top bottle
5.0% ABV
King/Spadina LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
December 14, 2012
Beer pours a mahogany colour with a thin tan ring for a head. Aroma is nutty malt, caramel, and weak hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour has the honey in it, some tart fruit notes, along with some grass and a weak bitter finish. Not bad, but I wouldnt try it a second time.
